Abstract

Herein, the fabrication of a lead-free cesium tin halide perovskite produced via a simple solvothermal process is reported for the first time. The resulting CsSnX3 (X = Cl, Br, and I) quantum rods show composition-tunable photoluminescence (PL) emissions over the entire visible spectral window (from 625 to 709 nm), as well as significant tunability of the optical properties. In this study, we demonstrate that through hybrid materials (CsSnX3) with different halides, the system can be tunable in terms of PL. By replacing the halide of the CsSnX3 quantum rods, a power conversion efficiency of 12.96% under AM 1.5 G has been achieved. This lead-free quantum rod replacement has demonstrated to be an effective method to create an absorber layer that increases light harvesting and charge collection for photovoltaic applications in its perovskite phase.
